Crochet Diaries: The Contemporary Granny


Of the two blankets I had intended on finishing and wrapping as gifts for Christmas this year, I have only managed to complete the one.

This (my own pattern), is the contemporary granny crocheted afghan that I designed and put together for my boyfriend's younger sister, based on a colour scheme that he chose for her.



Colour palette:
Craft Smart Chocolate Brown 
Craft Smart Navy Blue
Loops and Threads Rouge
Red Heart Beige
Red Heart Aran

Centre of squares patterned on the diagonal. 
Each row followed variation of: brown, beige, brown, blue. 

Size of afghan: approx 5.5 ft by 5 ft.

Awesome slippers peeking out at the bottom are just awesome. 




I am quite pleased with how it turned out, especially since I'd been working on it since the day after Canadian Thanksgiving.

It actually wasn't completely finished when I wrapped it... it still had some strings that hadn't been weaved in properly, yet. Regardless, the recipient loved it just the same. I tucked the rest of the strings in on Boxing Day whilst watching Planet Earth documentaries. I was still sporting a hefty food coma, so going out and battling the post-Christmas sales was NOT going to happen.
